Why babel user information is in English? How do I change it into Mara?

They are translatable as part of the standard translatable projects for Mediawiki on this wiki. Just translate them the normal way with the standard translator interface. There's a dedicated subgroup for "Babel" strings. what you see is just the standard fallback to English, because these messages are still not translated.

If you want, you may request that this language fallbacks to another language (Burmese? Hindi? or even Bengalese?) before falling back to English. But India and Myanmar have lot of national languages, and English is generally used in both countries as the common "de facto" interchange language between communities speaking different languages.

If another fallback is used for Mara Chin, it could be to another more "popular" regional language (such as Mizo) directly tied with Mara Chin, in the same region of Mizoram in India or in the nearby region of Myanmar.

But translating the Babel box messages is usually not a priority for any project (and not translating them has never been blocking the deployment of any wiki). Most users want first to haver the core Mediawiki UI messages translated because they will be constantly exposed to these messages.

Translating Babel boxes is very secondary and many users do not even use Babelboxes on their user pages (and Babelboxes are not used on all wikis that prefer to use something else (or that do not want to support "user pages" in the "User:" namespace, and just want to support their own community forums, and otherwise use their own system of private mailboxes or interpersonal communication tools, including chats). Babelboxes are also not suitable for general talk pages.

I am a translator of Mara language. But I was not displayed as the translator of Mara language on the page of Portal:Mrh. And my language is still regarded as the language without translators. Please help me with this.
